Kentmere 6012599 reviews

400 ASA Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for high school film classes! I have gone through 80 boxes of this film during the current school year. It's incredible for the price. Many schools are squeezed in terms of budget so while I love Kodak, at half the cost I was forced to try the Kentmere. My students can not tell the difference and I've seen great results with this film. I would shoot it in my own cameras. Absolutely love this film. It was a life-saver for our HS program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been very pleased First of all, I'm scanning my negatives rather than enlarging, so I'm not sure how well they enlarge, but they look really nice out of the scanner. They're a bit gritty, but great for what I'm doing. Nice texture you just want to reach out and touch when printed. I have used this, Tmax, and Tri-x. For whatever reason, the Kodak films aren't drying flat for me. They have a pretty strong curl I've not been able to flatten with heavy books on top, etc.. Kentmere dries nice and flat which helps when scanning. I've also not tried pushing or pulling, so I can't speak to that. I seem to be getting enough contrast for my needs; the rest I take care of in Photoshop with not much loss of quality. Maybe others can speak to contrast from an analog enlarging point of view. I've bought 5 or 6 of these 100 foot rolls, and for the price, I've been extremely pleased. I'm scanning at 9600 dpi, and love the grit. If you're looking for a creamier 400 ISO, this might not be for you, but if you like texture without excessive grain, you might be quite pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Develop ten percent longer I didn't like this film all that much until I started developing longer than specified . D76 stock at an extra ten percent gave beautiful results. Atththeir

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice film for the price I've only shot a few rolls of this film using toy and pinhole cameras, but I've been impressed with the sharpness and tonality. It seems a little grainy when processed in Ilfosol (1:14 mix), but I like the image quality. Overall, this film reminds me a great deal of old-style Tri-X, my favorite film back in the day. I'll definitely be buying more Kentmere soon!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for that gritty look I ordered two 100' rolls of this stuff earlier this year, and have just finished up both. I really wanted to love it, knowing that it was so inexpensive, and parts of me do. Overall though i'd have to say I probably won't be coming back to it anytime soon. Grain seems pretty excessive, almost to the point where 11x14 prints are unprintable. I've tried D-76, HC-110 and Tri-x developers at least a few times each, plus some Ilford chemistry at a friends lab. Every time results came out decent looking. Not horrible, but i could definitely tell just by looking at the negs what i was shooting. Negatives seem pretty thin, and the blacks really lack the punch that I like with hp-5. Overall the consistency was good, even once or twice when massively overdevelping a roll for kicks. (HC-110 1:1 for 6 mins @ 72') I still had printable results. Overall, I see it as a great practice film, but whenever I have some negs that I really like, I can't help having that sinking feeling that they would have been better on something else. The price is great, the results, eh. I think I'll grow up and shoot for quality results, not for quantity of frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it, Better than expected Price Just walked outside and went thru a roll then developed. Nikon N80, 24-85 3.5 AFS ED lens, Kodak HC-110 1:50 at 8 minutes/68 F. Looks good to me. I will try to include a scanned image of my quick test. Good shadow detail, not too grainy, tones are good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, affordable film, really shines at 1600. I've shot five rolls of this so far, and I am really liking it. I shot one at 400, just to see how it looked at box speed. It is nice, not too much grain, doesn't seem to mind being over exposed a couple stops. The rest of the roles were shot at 1600 (developed in D-76 1+1 for 22 minutes), and I think the film really shines. The grain is nice - visible, but it doesn't overpower or take away from the image at all. For the price, I definitely recommend it. I shot a 100' roll of HP5+ before this, and I am definitely pleased with the Kentmere. I will probably stick with it, since it is so affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money This film produces an old grey tone in my opinion. It is very different from Tmax. I like this tone personally. I am happy with this product. But stay away Kalt re-Usable 35mm film camister which is really poor quality.
